Night Safari at Asa Zoo

August 19
Asa Zoo,
Asa-cho, Asa-kita-ku
Hiroshima-shi, Hiroshima-ken 731-3355 Japan
Asa Zoo Night Safari 2017

A chance to see the nocturnal animals in action and to escape to the relative cool of the Asa highlands. The "night safari" is only held 8 nights a year, and it is always popular with families and dating couples. There is plenty of debate as to just how bad a zoo Asa Zoo is. It seems to us that although the confined spaces in which many of the animals are kept (especially the big cats) are disgraceful, on the whole, as zoos go,…

Miyajima Fireworks Festival

August 26 @ 7:40 pm - 8:40 pm
Miyajima,
Hatsukaichi-shi, Hiroshima-ken Japan

Hiroshima's most well known fireworks festival. 5000 fireworks explode over the sea silhouetting Itsukushima Shrine's O-torii. Worth seeing, but expect huge crowds (300,000 people showed up last year) and you should get there early to avoid a fight for the prime viewing spots. For those relying on the train, a good tip for the return trip on the way back to Hiroshima is to take the first train heading in the opoosite direction (Iwakuni bound) one stop so you can…
